This year, Dentsply Sirona, the world's largest dental product manufacturer, again received the prestigious "Top Employer" certification from the Top Employers Institute. The Netherlands-based certification company has been recognizing Top Employers all over the world since 1991, honoring enterprises for their exceptional personnel programs. All the companies taking part undergo a uniform investigation procedure. The companies must meet high requirements and comply with excellent standards to achieve certification. This year, Dentsply Sirona was again named Top Employer for Germany and China and for the first time, for Switzerland as well.
On February 13, the Rheinterrasse in the center of Düsseldorf, Germany, was the unique setting for the traditional certification dinner where the awards for Germany and Switzerland were presented. The award ceremony for China had already taken place in Shanghai at the end of 2017.
Extraordinary achievements in employee orientation and an outstanding employee environment
To reinforce the value and significance of the entire certification process, all results also underwent an additional independent external audit. This external audit also confirmed that Dentsply Sirona has demonstrated outstanding achievements in employee orientation, thus earning a place in the exclusive group of certified Top Employers.
Steffen Neefe, Country Manager Germany, Austria and Switzerland at the Top Employers Institute states, "Ideal working conditions allow individuals to develop their professional and personal lives. Our detailed investigation has revealed that Dentsply Sirona has created an outstanding employee environment and works continuously to optimize this environment. This includes its program of innovative secondary benefits, the creation of modern, flexible working conditions, and effective performance management that is in harmony with the corporate culture."
Confirmation as a globally successful employer
Maureen MacInnis, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at Dentsply Sirona summarizes, "We are very proud to be again in the elite circle of Top Employers. People are, and always will be, our greatest asset."
